Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells and Regeneration 


Our Vision: Translating pioneering developmental and stem cell science for patient benefit

The Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells and Regeneration (CHDSCR) was founded in 2004 as a cross-disciplinary research and translational programme within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.

The Centre undertakes fundamental research into early development and stem cells together with applied translational research targeting the NHS and patient benefit.

The Centre has vibrant and thriving interdisciplinary research programmes that harness the translational strength of the University together with an innovative Stem Cell PhD programme, outstanding clinical infrastructure and enterprise to deliver on this vision.

The Centre comprises a grouping of scientists and clinician scientists with a shared interest in Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine within excellent core space in the Institute of Developmental Sciences and units across Southampton General Hospital and Institute for Life Sciences

Our Mission: Our aim is to understand early human development and fundamental stem cell biology to inform and aid our translation and development of cell therapies for regenerative medicine.
